Q: I moved out of my apartment last month, leaving it clean and without any damage. But I have yet to receive my deposit back. I now live several hundred miles away in another state. Any suggestions on how to get that deposit back? –Marc S.

A: Many states have strict rules on how landlords should collect and use deposits. These rules include the process of returning them when the tenant moves out.
